Who we are

We are PostNL, the number one service provider in mail and logistics

We deliver parcels every day and mail five days a week. On a weekday, we deliver on average 675,000 parcels and 8 million letters throughout the Benelux. We are the indispensible link for our customers between senders and recipients, and the connector between the physical and the digital world.

Large employer

For more than 200 years, we ensure that mail is reliable and accessible in the Netherlands. With our more than 44,000 employees, we are one of the largest private employers in the Netherlands. PostNL has the largest and most modern logistics mail and parcel network in the Benelux. Our mail and parcel network in Italy is expanding, and we come second on the mail market in Germany. In addition, we are active throughout the world with our cross-border activities under the name of Spring.

More than delivering mail and parcels

PostNL is transforming from a traditional mail business into a logistics service provider. By now, we are doing a lot more than delivering mail and parcels. We help our business customers to be successful, for example, by providing support in direct and online marketing, robotised order processing, or temperature-controlled medical transport. And we develop services that make consumers' lives easier, such as collecting parcels at home that consumers wish to return, delivering flowers and meals, or delivering and fitting kitchens and white goods.

The customer comes first

The consumer and the business customers are our starting point in everything we do. We feel that it is important to keep mail accessible and reliable for everyone, both in the city and in the country. Whether it concerns a birthday card, a heel prick, or funeral cards. The unstoppable growth of e-commerce is an important motive for our parcel delivery and logistics activities. We make online shopping ever easier. We help webshops grow by offering ever more delivery options. Besides, the consumers increasingly gain control over the time when and the place where we deliver a parcel. PostNL is always near. Via the PostNL App on smartphone and tablet, and in the neighbourhood. Our deliverers come in every street, seven days a week, rain or shine.

Delivering is always a human job

Although contact with our customers is becoming ever more digital, delivering is always a human job. With our loyal employees, our state-of-the-art logistics networks, and the drive to innovate, we are in a strong position to achieve our ambition. PostNL wants to be the number one logistics service provider for mail and parcels in the markets in which we operate. Our people play an important part in realising our ambition.
